Investigating Some Neglected Criteria: The Influence of Organizational Level and Perceived System Knowledge on Appraisal Reactions
Preview not available

Abstract

Researchers have suggested that examining the factors which influence appraisal reactions is important because these reactions are critical criteria of appraisal effectiveness. The current field study investigates how organizational level and knowledge of the performance appraisal system may be related to employees' reactions toward the performance appraisal system. Inferences from past research suggest that supervisory employees' unique perspective on the appraisal system may lead to more positive evaluations. The present study attempts to better explain this relationship by investigating the effect of Perceived System Knowledge (PSK) as a mediator of this relationship. Results revealed that PSK completely mediated the relationship between organizational level and appraisal reactions.
